Monty is now working with jewelry and metal smithing. These are works of silver and gold occasionally set with precious gems like turquoise, coral, and diamonds. The pieces he creates are of high quality, with artistic creativity, fine details, and very sculptural definitions that make them come to life. His work is recently sought after by major collectors, museum board members, and major curators. With the support of his family and peers he continues to explore jewelry and metal smithing with a vision of his own setting a path for his stories in the form of art.
